    In honour of Jim Bowen, and the passing of the Greco! "MIJ" Bargain of the day ! thread, there's probably still a need for a thread to post the junk we have in our watchlists, even if only to keep track of prices. One of the things I found useful from the bargain thread was the amount of info you pick from the additional input you get from other members pointing out model numbers, better auction translations and more importantly why something wasn't the bargain it may have first appeared. No need to post up 'bargains' as such just those weird and wonderful guitars we're watching or if you'd like a little more info on something you'd considered going for.

    The YJ auctions are a minefield at the best of times so every little bit of info helps and at worst we have a thread to post lot's of pretty pictures.

    Anyway here's an ObG I thought was a good buy went for 43K and considering they don't come up often is a good price. I see kon**** also picked up a Burny version at a fair price but I'll avoid posting that one up as someone may want to do a pending thread.

    I have a non-veneered Yamaki 12 string like the Morris above.
    Solid Braz sides and back with a solid spruce top.
    Amazing guitar but I hate tuning 12 strings lol.

    Surprised this Greco RG-750 went thru unsold at 29K they usually sell for more. Maybe the lack of the Greco trc put people off. Considering the majority of them have been replaced by fake Rickenbacker ones it's hard to see why it'd be a problem.

    Hard to see if the damage to the neck is just superficial in the photos but didn't stop koiz picking this 3 pup sg blue curtain beauty up at 17K

    Dunno how much the mosrites usually sell for but I was close to pulling the trigger on this to use up some deposited funds when it was a bit cheaper than the end 22K

    I see a Rinkya buyer picked up that 57B for 88K, probably a fair price and they certainly won't be disappointed with the quality of them, aside from the inlays maybe :)

    This one caught my eye too, trouble is I've no real knowledge of the Tokai models but having seen the quality of Wulfmans LC100's it's something to look out for. Also anything usednet manages to sell @ 43K is usually a bargain :) Hard to see from the photos if the board is ebony as it doesn't look so at first glance

    No serial was mentioned, but that headstock inlay is from mid 80s AFAIK. My other one is an 84. Don't see many of those.

    I was going to stop around 32k, but the principle! I had to see how far it would go.

    Yeah I saw in the 84/85 catalogues with that headstock inlay and the only TLC's were the 60's and 100's - I'm guessing both must be sought after for a usednet auction to hit 43K with missing tuners and the usual crappy descriptions

    Put few bids in on that one just for the heck of it (almost 1/2 of what it sold for) Several of these sold for 35-40K in last few weeks, so this one is a bit high compared to the other 2. They also came with a hard case.

    What is usednet btw? Tried finding it but no dice. Heard it mentioned few times on here.

    Yep it was a mystery why it went as high as it did tbh, from what I could see it looked like a 81-85 TLC60 2 piece maho top, multiple piece maho back, 57 MKII vintage PAFs, poly finish etc but I've no real idea of Tokai's or their values or those little signs you need to look out for like the switch tips, tuners, knobs used etc
